This October, Spike TV presents its 4th annual Scream awards, which honor the best horror, sci-fi, fantasy and comic-book inspired films.
The event was taped on Saturday, Oct. 17 and will be aired on Spike TV on Tuesday, Oct. 27.
Categories include best movie for all the previously mentioned categories, “The Ultimate Scream,” “Scream Song of the Year,” “Best Superhero” and many more.
While it was up to the advisory board to assemble the nominees, fans were able to vote online for their favorites. Among those on the advisory panel include Tim Burton, Eli Roth, Wes Craven and Zack Snyder.
Of all the nominations, “Star Trek” tops out with 17 nods.
Quentin Tarantino, Christina Ricci, JJ Abrams and casts including “Twilight,” “True Blood” and “The Vampire Diaries” will all be either presenting or accepting awards.
Johnny Depp will also be present (yay!) to accept an award for the “Most Anticipated Sci-Fi Movie”(Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” which is to be released in March of next year). He will also be presenting the Rolling Stone’s Keith Richards with the ‘Rock Immortal’ award.
While this awards show is pretty much the polar opposite of The Oscars, it’s a must see for horror/sci-fi/fantasy fans.
Scream 2009 will be televised on Spike TV on Oct. 27 at 10 p.m.
For now, enjoy this “Alice In Wonderland” trailer. What do you think…did it deserve the award?
